Let’s watch SVU with my Mom.

My Mom watches a lot of Law & Order, Special Victims Unit. Like, A LOT. Like, if my Dad can’t find a marathon on TV she just won’t watch TV. And while she’s watching it, my Mom says the most hilarious things.  Obviously, it might be hard to offer an open invitation to anyone who would like to watch TV with us, so I drew some pictures to try and capture some of my favorite / the most common moments. 

As you may know, the plots are incredibly complicated. There’s basically no structure to the episodes at all. If only they could set it up like Part 1) introduce the victim, dead or alive; Part 2) meet key characters; Part 3) trial; Part 4) music and credits. At least with a little structure my Mom wouldn’t have to continually ask:

SVUquotes03

This is pretty common. She often falls asleep after the first 15 minutes OR wakes up with 15 minutes to go. I’m not sure if she has ever seen an entire episode in one sitting.

SVUquotes05

She has never stood up at Town Meeting when she’s had an idea or objection, but she could have presided over an entire courtroom in her youth…

SVUquotes02

Due in part to falling asleep, and general not-paying-attention-ness, she often misses the entrance of key characters. This question comes up several times per episode.

And my personal favorite: 

SVUquotes01

Me too, Mom. Me too.
